and we've heard manner of senator thune's colleagues say they want barack obama to fail. i don't question anybody's patriotism, but i do question what they want for their country when they say things like that. there is a lot at stake here. i think republicans know if this is successful because i think this bill will work and it will be evident early that it works, as early as 2010, because things will start happening already. i think they know politically that is not good for them, but if they had joined us and worked better with us, it would be a different story. >> host: the details of the bill show 2013 before we see full benefits paying for 2010, 2011 and 2012. >> that is mostly correct. major parts of the bill, the public option, insurance exchange will be 2013 or 2014. i still advocate to move that up, but other major parts of the bill earlier. wellness and prevention starts quickly. we will close the donut hole in half on the senate floor and try to amend it to close dotnut hole entirely within a few months. we're going to do a lot of insurance reform quickly in 2010. much of this

-- don't trust me, ask my friend, jan schakowsky or chairman barney frank. even believe president obama who said, i happen to be a proponent of of a single payer health care plan. but i don't think we are going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. make no mistake, this bill will achieve the single payer goal. and along with it will raise premiums, increase tax, cut billions of dollars from medicare, and cost millions of working americans their jobs. and at the end a single payer system will force every american into a one-size-fits-all system that rations care. a government that rations care is anti-life. and i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from california. mr. waxman: mr. speaker, at this time i'm very pleased to recognize and to yield one minute to the gentlelady from connecticut, rosa delauro. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman is recognized for one minute. ms. delauro: i rise at this historic moment in support of the affordable health care for america act. none of us will again have such an opport

support that very enthusiastically. but president obama is at this moment in korea and that is what led me to talk about the importance of our dealing with job creation. as i talk to my constituents, mr. speaker, jobs, jobs, jobs. that is the message that continues to come through loudly and clearly and the notion of expanding private sector jobs is something that i believe we should be epcouraging through improved tax and regulatory policy, bringing about marginal rate reduction, decreasing the regulatory burden and, mr. speaker, opening up new opportunities for u.s. workers here in the united states of america which is exactly what is being said to president obama as he meets in korea at this moment with their leadership. with president lee and others. so i think that we need to have our attention in this congress focused on the priorities -- the priorities the american people have. fire fighting is very, very important. but again this measure will pass if not unanimously narrowly unanimously and it will do so and i hope get the resources to ensure that we never have the loss of life lik
to president obama today will accomplish that goal for over one million of our fellow citizens before the end of the year. additionally, it would help keep families in their homes and prevent foreclosures. this is the right thing to do and we shouldn't have wait the so long -- waited so long to do it. i yield to the gentleman from california. >> i ask unanimous consent to associate my self with the remarks of the distinguished chairman and to urge adoption. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. mcdermott: i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas. mr. brady: i yield five minutes to the gentleman from georgia. mr. linder. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from georgia is recognized for five minutes. mr. linder: i thank the gentleman for yielding. six weeks ago we stood on this floor to discuss a prior version of this bill providing extended unemployment benefits. since then we have gotten additional checkups on jobs and unemployment in the united states and the democrats' 2009 stimulus plan has received more failing grades. another 263,0

rumors. i have no inside knowledge that members of president obama's economic team are, in fact, considering the idea of including some kind of commission in their next budget submission. that would be important, if true, and that, i think, has a bearing on the timing -- on the timing at least to the proposal to establish a commission. and as for -- as for the question of when the vote should occur, i think that trying to time the establishment and the reporting of the commission so that nobody has to make a vote -- take a vote until after november of 2012 would not be the most responsible course of action. so if you're asking me, it seems to me that a reasonable timetable would be to establish the commission, give it, say a year to come up with the report and then have serious consideration of a plan in spring of 2011. that would be a considerable timetable. >> senator greg, you sort of made my argument much better than i did. i wasn't as clear as i meant to be. i think the benefit of the commission is that it does signal to markets and to creditors that we're very serious abou
